Surprise.Microsoft Profited.

Yes. NY Times has the full report. But that's for all those who want to dig deep down how they did it? The news is" THEY DID IT". Even after an Operating System "upgrade" after 5 years which sells for a ridiculous price tag, a system hardware requirement which sucks in more resources than the best vacuum cleaner in the market could, and yyes, even after the slaughter of the Zune. NY TIMES reports that the Redmond guys have earned 1.1 billion $ more this quarter, and the profits have rose by 23%.Shockingly enough, the major 'loser' in the Microsoft Umbrella has been its internet sites.
